Recent rain made both falls really full and noisy. It is all uphill from the Dell to the Knob but never so steep to get you out of breath.

Great trail. Not many mountain views in the spring but the beauty of this Forest is remarkable. Found many edible flora and mushrooms. Great place for a survival hike. Many deep rock crevasse to take shelter under in case of rain. Waterfalls were bliss. We went on a rainy day so no one was on the trail. The dogs loved it. The trail never got to steep but a nice climb. Awesome day !!!!!!!

One of my favorites in GA. Lots of different sections, challenging but not killer hard. Some great campsites along the way. Beautiful creek and falls

The trail head is on the road so you have to park at the warwomen dell area and follow the yellow marked path that leads you across the street and to the trail. There is a small waterfall not too far in and then there is nothing but the path and woods (about 3 miles) until you reach another small waterfall and then the landing with a larger Waterfall. Not a bad hike and worth the waterfall if you are going to stay a while and enjoy it.

I completed this trail through a series of day hikes. Every outing was better than the last. It is a beautiful trail. It's a pretty easy hike at either end of the trail & pretty hilly in the middle, but mostly moderate. There are lots of access points to the trail if you know where to go. You can access the trail at these places starting from the north part of the trail and going south: Hale Ridge Road, Beegum Gap, Courthouse Gap, War Woman Dell, Sandy Ford Road, Earl's Ford Road, & Russell Bridge. There are also a few nice camping spots especially at Martin Falls and along the Chattooga River.

did an out an back section of the trail in late spring, the trail was in great shape and has some sections that were pretty steep for the kids, but overall it was a very fun day.

I'd just like to second the fellow who advised to fill up on water. Even fresh after a rain water is pretty scarce.
